This is a good thing to consider whether it's for preamps or anything
else such as a tower-mounted remote co-ax switch. I had one meter,
think it was an MFJ-815, that did not have a DC path through it.
My co-ax switch didn't work anymore ! Had to peddle the meter and
put in another, then everything was OK again.
